State Representative Tom Sannicandro, who represents parts of Framingham and Ashland, and serves as the House Chair of the Joint Committee on Higher Education will be hosting  a free educational seminar on saving for college On Wednesday, June 15th at the Forum at Framingham State University, from 6:30 – 8:00pm. Presented by MEFA, the Commonwealth’s authority on planning, saving, and paying for college, the English-language forum is designed for parents with children of any age, and will provide an overview of saving for college, including the different ways to save in Massachusetts, how much to save, and when to start. An experienced MEFA representative will provide families with the information and tools they need to create a college financing plan, while demystifying college savings myths and how savings affects financial aid eligibility.  

The EMC Student STAR Program is a 4-day intensive workshop for students who are entering their junior or senior year of high school, or their freshman year of college. It is designed to equip students with the tools needed to excel in their academic journey.

The aim of the Student STAR Program is to bridge the gap between higher education and professional development by focusing on four themes central to every student’s success:
  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Life Skills
  • Introduction to Business
